Larapinta Trek

We had a wonderful time on our recent 8 day Larapinta Trek. The trip was made all the more enjoyable by the assistance of our guides Adrian and Craig. Their flexibility, steady temperaments, knowledge, friendship, experience, sense of humor and ability in the kitchen took all the difficulties out of our experience. Nothing was too much trouble, and everything that should have happened happened, and happened when it should have. They made the whole experience for us a simple walk in the bush. We could not reccommend them more highly.

Katherine River Canoeing

The tropical Katherine River has long been appreciated by our travellers as a fantastic way to experience the Top End wilderness. For over 25 years, adventurers have paddled down the crystal rapids and pandanus channels on our classic Top End itineraries. This pioneering paddling adventure is a worthwhile experience on its own, or as a natural extension to any of our amazing Northern Territory itineraries. Beginning in Katherine, transfer by 4WD vehicle to the put-in location and begin our journey downstream. The spring-fed waters keep flowing throughout the dry season, allowing you to enjoy a unique 3 day paddling excursion travelling between 40 and 55 kilometres downstream. You'll camp on sandy riverbanks and enjoy the splendid isolation far removed from the more popular attractions. Those seeking the full river expedition should talk to us about our 6 day Katherine and Flora River Expedition, available on request.
